Shoot XIII - "Bass Pro Rallye II"

I am back from a twenty-three day, five country trek through Europe! Okay, the five countries is a stretch as we did a day trip to Bruges (Belgium) and another day spent in Vatican City! Spent considerable time in Amsterdam (The Netherlands), Paris (France), and Rome (Italy). Here is one of my early favorites 

"The Streets of Paree" 

Oh, there's only 2300+ more images from the trip - about 100 a day (you won't see them all)!

Were you thinking Arizona? Of course, it was London Bridge that gave it away! I'll bet you are singing the little ditty as you are reading this, right? Well, the "Grand Canyon State" was also the guess from Carol, Michelle, Milt, Mike Di, Peyton, and Joani. Oh so close for Doris who missed it by one state!

"Ford Fairlane"

As I continue with the Bass Pro Shop shoot, I had a most difficult decision as to which of the images to share with you. The "Ford Fairlane" took the honor. For me it was the contrasting color of maroon against the white with a swatch of chrome to keep them separated! Ford placed their iconic logo right above the bend in the chrome strip. Think about all of the workmanship that went into these classics - the lengths of chrome strips, well placed decals/logos, huge chrome bumpers, whitewall tires, hubcaps that were more like mirrors, unique tail lights and headlights, etc. As a kid, we could tell the make, model, and year of any car just by looking at the tail lights! Can't do that with today's cars! 

Thought for the week. . .

Found these most interesting outlooks on life:

Here are some interesting facts about one of our fifty states. Do you know which one? This state boasts of:

being the "Pinto Bean capital of the world."
being the "melon capital of the world."
hosting  the worlds largest rodeo, the Western Stock show!
having the world’s largest silver nugget was found within its  
    borders in 1894.  It was almost 2,000 pounds!
being the home to model Cheryl Tiegs and comedian, Tim Allen

Leaving you with a smile, I hope. . .

Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?
